D                                                    Asus4
Upon the bitter green she walked the hills above the town.
D                                   Asus4
Echo to her footsteps as soft as Eider down.
D                                  Asus4
Waiting for her master to kiss away her tears.
G                            A
Waiting through the years.
                       D
Chorus:   Bitter Green they called her.
              G                    A  G                A                 D
              Walking in the sun Loving everyone that she met.
              D                                       G                    A
               Bitter Green they called her Waiting in the sun.
              G                        A                    D             D  
               Waiting for someone to take her home.
          D                               Asus4
Some say he was a sailor who died away at sea.
Some say he was a prisoner who never was set free.
Lost upon the ocean he died there in the mist.
Dreaming of her kiss.

Chorus;
               
But now the bitter green is gone, the hills have turned to rust.
There comes a weary stranger, his tears fall in the dust.
Kneeling in the graveyard in the autumn mist.
He’s dreaming of her kiss.

(Repeat chorus twice.)
